Bassetlaw Garden Village
The draft Bassetlaw Local Plan identifies the Bassetlaw Garden Village as a new settlement in the District. It will start to be delivered from 2028 and will continue for the next 20 years or so.
Situated between Worksop and Retford next to the A1/A57 junction the site provides an opportunity to deliver a step change in the District’s economy in a sustainable location. The settlement will create a dynamic new place, focused around exemplar housing and businesses, with well-paid, skilled jobs and housing capable of adapting to meet local needs, where healthy lifestyles is a life choice, and where technological advances and climate resilience is built in to provide flexibility in the future.
Alongside the consultation for the draft Local Plan the Council are consulting on the Bassetlaw Garden Village Vision Statement.
This sets out the vision and key development principles, and how housing, employment and land use will be distributed across the site. It also includes key infrastructure requirements and design principles.
